George Osborne has branded the Prime Minister "a dead woman walking".

"The Tory party was absolutely furious that Theresa May failed to acknowledge the loss and suffering of many MPs", he said.

Ouch... Mr S thinks May might be coming to regret her choice of words when she sacked Osborne.

He confirmed that he had raised the issue with her before she gave an interview later that afternoon in which she said she was "sorry" at what had happened to them.
